NEW YORK CITY — Melissa Ben-Ishay, co-founder and CEO of New York dessert brand Baked by Melissa, recently announced her second cookbook with HarperCollins, Come Hungry, will be available January 16, 2024.
Prior to Come Hungry, Melissa released Cakes by Melissa in October 2017, which featured over 120 baking recipes ranging from cakes and icings to fillings and toppings. The new cookbook features recipes for meals accommodating to any diet in addition to dessert recipes created to balance nourishment with indulgence. The Melissa’s Green Goddess Salad recipe, which garnered over 25 million views on TikTok, is also included in the cookbook.
“I started posting recipes on TikTok during COVID and never in a million years could’ve imagined how far they’d take me,” Melissa said on LinkedIn. “Writing this cookbook is a dream come true, and I’m so excited to share more about its creation over the next few months.”
Come Hungry is available for preorder on the Baked by Melissa website and through major book retailers.
